Doing a Roof leak repair is the first thing to comes to mind when homeowners find water stains on the ceilings. Most of the times Roofing repairs are the cheapest way to resolve roofing leaks. But unfortunately, the cheaper route doesn’t always mean less money for you. When we bring many other factors into the table and start looking at the bigger picture, we realize that roofing repairs are a temporary patch to cover small issues. Most likely, there’s an underlying condition causing bigger issues on hand, and only a professional roofer in Kissimmee FL will be able to locate the issue. Legion Roofing and Construction does not recommend roof leak repairs. However, if the homeowner wants to do it, we will be more than happy to assist with the repair. Here’s the process:
LOCATING THE ROOF LEAK
The first step to repair a roof leak is by locating where the leak is coming from. We start by doing getting on top of the roof to do an inspection. Once we’re on top of the roof, we locate the area from where the roof leak is coming from. It is always important to do this with extreme precaution because the plywood decking below roofing shingles might be damaged and fragile.
CHECK THE ATTIC
In the event we’re unable to locate the leak on top of the roof, going to the attic might be necessary. Once there with a flashlight, we try to locate black mold spots, leaking water, or black streaks. This will indicate the area from which the water is running down.
FIXING THE ROOF LEAK
After locating the site of damaged roofing, we will need to prepare the needed material to do the roofing repair. The basic tools for a roof leak repair are a hammer, a crowbar, nails, caulk, caulk gun, razor bland/holder, cap nail, roofing cement, extra shingles, and extra tar paper. It can be possible that the situation that the Homeowner is in will require more material.
WARRANTY FOR YOUR ROOF LEAK REPAIR
After the roof is repaired, you are going to get a warranty for a certain amount of time and under certain conditions in case something happens.
